Actress TORI SPELLING and her husband DEAN MCDERMOTT have reportedly been hit with a default judgment over an unpaid loan.
Bosses at City National Bank launched legal action against the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star and McDermott in December (16) for allegedly failing to pay back a $400,000 (£323,600) loan from 2012.
In papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the couple was accused of owing $185,700 (£150,200), plus $2,400 (£1,940) in interest and $680 (£550) in late charges as of 2 December (16). Executives at the bank also requested the pair repays $17,150 (£13,900) in funds reportedly overdrawn from its account.
Spelling and McDermott have yet to settle the loan and are now facing a $188,000 (£152,000) default judgment. According to the DailyMail.com, if the judgment is granted, bank bosses will be able to go after the couple’s assets.
The news comes in the same week McDermott had to hand over his first instalment of outstanding child support to his ex-wife after narrowly avoiding jail last week (ends10Mar17). The actor and reality TV star was held in contempt of court on 9 March (17) after his former spouse Mary Jo Eustace filed a complaint in October (16), accusing him of missing multiple payments to support their 18-year-old son Jack.
However, the former couple reached an agreement and McDermott gave Eustace $2,500 (£2,000), half of the outstanding amount, this week (ends17Mar17). His next payment is due on 1 April (17).
